The Christmas that never was....
Posted 26 December 2015 - 10:23 AM
Thanks for sharing. I came from a very traditional home were I was taught the real spirit of Christmas was in giving. My wife of ten years, and although I love her so, was not. Every Christmas we struggle over our differences and this year it has me down a bit. But I'm encouraged by your story and have hope that I can at least past down my traditional meaning of Christmas to my kids.
Merry Christmas all

It can be a hard time of the year for many people.
Thanks for taking the time to read and post a comment.
I feel very fortunate to have met and experianced getting to know the people and I am often humbled or left short of words when they will share some of the most difficult times of their personal lives.

One who was there .....
Bravo Co. 101st Airborne Division, 2/506th ABN INF-We remember.
Posted on 1/24/17 - by Everett "Doc" Franks
Bravo company lost 38 (confirmed-and also an unknown number of additional KIA's probably exist but can not be verified) killed in action in 1968, John was one of the first to lose his life. John was a medic and died during an intense firefight while aiding a wounded soldier. He lost his life protecting one of his Bravo Co. brothers.
Indeed, he died a hero. I was with him at his side when he drew his last breath. A wonderful man and friend died on 01-16-68. We in Bravo Co. will always remember him. Mason City and Gene Madson Thanks for honoring him...

Thanks for keeping this paratrooper's legacy alive, I have read and seen his memorial on the beach at the end of Clear Lake downtown several times.
